Crosscore vs TRX Suspension Training

One of the top three fitness trends today is Bodyweight suspension training. Why is it so popular you may ask? First off, it is an extremely efficient way of working out as you can train your entire body on the suspension trainer. This means a very small space is needed to do a job that 20-30 machines would normally do. Second, it is a very affordable way to workout as all the extra machines are not needed and a typical suspension device costs no more than $250. Third, the suspension trainers are portable and can be taken anywhere; the beach,  1.

Sound Nutrition vs. Fad Diets

For many years “fad diets” have taken over the minds and the bodies of way too many people. There is a good reason why something is called a “fad”; simply because it comes and it goes.

Hopefully we all know by now that there is a major shift in the different styles of fitness training these days. Some people believe it or not are still stuck in the past and spend all their time focusing on workouts using machines. Others have evolved their way of thinking and are getting much better results by doing so. They focus their time with functional training and are getting excellent results. What is the real difference between these two types of training? The major difference between the two styles is simple, planes of motion. For the past 40-50 years most people trained in what is called the “sagittal” plane; this is everything in front of us, bicep curls, bench press, squats, lunges, etc. The problem with only training in this plane of motion is we forget about the stabilizing and rotating muscles. These are the muscles that...
